Before and After !!!!

Do you ever get in a rut with your crafting space?  Does it seem like the more room you have the more you need?  I can totally relate!!  This past week I just couldn't stand it any more and I just had to spend ZERO time creating and 4 days cleaning, purging, reorganizing, etc.!  Holy cow!!  What a difference!

BEFORE of my Work Space!!
 To say I am happy with it is an understatement!!!  I have space to walk around the tables, open doors and drawers and have people in the studio without asking everyone to move!

Held my first club group last night and the gals were amazed at how much more room we had!

Hey friends!

It has been awhile since I have had some new classes to offer you!  Well, I have been a very busy girl and have two great classes lined up both with two different offering times--one in the morning and a duplicate class in the evening!!!  You decide which fits best in your schedule!

Are you interested in memory keeping (NOT scrap booking) or are you a burned out scrapbooker who wants to document their photos without draining time, energy and wallets. No creativity required!!!   No gluing or cropping! It is so quick, easy, and very affordable. I'd LOVE to show you how you can create beautiful albums documenting your story without all of the time and energy of traditional scrapbooking!!!!  Here is your chance...

PLEASE VOTE FOR ME!! - Convention 2014 Contest and Info

Hello my friends!

I know my blog has been quiet...I am away at SU!'s Inspire.Create.Share. Convention 2014 in Salt Lake City Utah!  Last night (Thursday) I attended a Master's Class and I am now in a contest.  PLEASE consider helping me out!  I need you to click on the pinterest link that I have provided here and simply "LIKE" and "REPIN" my entry!!  The more action my pin gets the more likely I can win!!


Meanwhile, I thought I would share a bit of what we have been doing so far.  On Tuesday my little group and I spent the day touring the Utah Olympic Park in Park City, Utah.  We were able to watch the freestyle and Nordic ski jumpers training in both a specialized jump/pool and on the actual jumps they use in the Olympics!  I was amazing!  Of course watching all of the action caused the adrenaline for some of us to flair up and we had to get in on some action!  While at the park we found they had an extreme zip line..... OF COURSE I DID!!

This is Mel and I getting geared up and ready to go!  I'm wearing a GoPro camera so that I could catch all the live action!  (video posted below!)

After spending some time at the Olympic Park we ventured to the Kennecott Copper Mine/Bingham Canyon.  OMG!  What an adventure.  In 2013 the area suffered a landslide.  As a result the visitor road, visitor's center, and gift shops were wiped out.  That means that most people do NOT get to see the mine/canyon....NOT US!  We ventured 10,000 feet up, about 10 miles drive, on a road definitely NOT fit for travel.  It became a single lane, gravel, hairpin turned, very scary adventure...but we made it!

Yes, we survived and lived to tell about it!  After getting ourselves back to the hotel, we ventured for dinner to Christopher's Prime Steak House.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post for our next day of convention fun!!!

Lots of Thanks - Bonus Video!!

Hey everyone!  Thanks for visiting today!

I am thrilled to share a very simple yet stunning set of Thank You notes!  These delightful projects were created by my adorable assistant, Marlene!   She made 50 of them in various colors for me to take to Inspire. Create. Share. Convention 2014 to swap out for her!

They showcase our banner framelits, a couple of our punches and several different bows using both ribbon and linen thread!

take a close look at the cards in the top picture and look at how absolutely perfect the bows are!  This is because Marlene used my "Perfect Bow" technique!  Want to learn how??  Scroll down to the video below (Which has been on my YouTube channel for some time now!)

Enjoy!...be sure to share your perfect bows with me!

Hot, Hot, Hot Blog Hop

Hey my friends!  It is that time again!  The 15th of the month means it is time for the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop!!!  That means 13 fabulous blogs for you to visit and be inspired by! 

Our theme this month - HOT, HOT, HOT means that we have some creative summer ideas for you!  If you came here from Judy's Blog then you are in the right place.  If you are one of my regular blog followers, be sure to click the next blog link below and keep following until you have seen all 13 creations! 

The project that I am sharing with you is one that I was inspired by when I was on my Caribbean cruise a couple of months ago!  This fabulous card was one I cased from a swap received.  If I had the name of the person who did the original art work, I would certainly credit him or her but I don't have that info.

The card base is from Warm Brown Sugar cardstock.  The second layer is Crisp Cantaloupe, and the next layer is Coastal Cabana.  The images are from the By The Tide stamp set and scream of HOT, HOT, HOT aka...summer to me!

Hop on over to Lee's blog now for your next dose of summer fun! Click the next blog button and you will arrive!  Be sure to visit me tomorrow for a fun video on a creative and fool proof way to tie a bow EVERY time!
